Those interested in learning more about the Valemount Glacier Resort Interim Agreement and local and provincial government review processes are invited to attend an information session jointly hosted by the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, the Regional District of Fraser-Fort George and the Village of Valemount.
Date: Wednesday, June 5, 2013
Time: 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Location: Valemount Community Hall, 101 Gorse St.
Representatives from the ministry, the regional district and the village will be on hand to explain the government review processes for the Valemount Glacier Resort proposal and answer any questions.
In 2011, the Village of Valemount invited the proponent to consider the Valemount area for a mountain resort development. In November 2012, Valemount Glacier Destinations Ltd. submitted a formal proposal for the resort to the ministry's Mountain Resorts Branch. In March 2013, the ministry approved Valemount Glacier Destinations' interim agreement that allows them to begin preparing a resort master plan and participate in the master plan review process.
